I believe that my site only actually ceases to respond once MaxClients is
reached. Even though MaxClients is no doubt not the underlying cause of the
problem (but a symptom) what I would like to do is automatically restart
apache and interchange when MaxClients is reached as this would keep website
downtime to a minimum.
It occurs to me that a good way of doing this would be to pipe the Apache
error log through a script which greps for "server reached MaxClients
setting, consider raising the MaxClients setting".
As soon as the script sees the above error message being piped to it I would
like it to restart the services without delay.
Is this possible? I was wondering if anyone knows how to do this? e.g. an
example script. If so, I would be very grateful as I am currently clueless
on how to attempt this. Thank you.
